is hidden. i remember for a book i did called "the agenda" on bill clinton, and it was about his economic plan. i interviewed him once, and it was on background. but he's talked about it, so i have talked about it. and you go into to the oval office. this was early 1994, and clinton drills you with this eye contact that is absolutely a gravitational force. i've never seen anyone maintain eye contact like bill clinton. and to a -- and it's unblinking. and he just stares and, of course, it creates a sense of intimacy, it slows time down, and i remember thinking this eye contact is amazing, and somebody later suggested to me, said, well, he wanted to be president ever since he was 5. [laughter] and he decided to contribute all organs in the body to the task. [laughter] including the eyes. [laughter] and it's, you can drain yourself. you just don't -- you can train yourself, you just don't blink. so we're going through there, and i thought, oh, this is a great interview. and he's so focused. i each started thinking, oh -- i each started thinking, oh, he realizes how brilliant my questions are
below the mason/dixon line. and the right still lamb upons hillary clinton for trying to put on an accent. politicians on both sides do that. >> roland martin what do you make of this obama video? >> i think it's utterly laughable that sean hahnity, daily caller and the rest of these folks are making this out to be significant. something written on june 7, 2007, was a headline i wrote on cnn.com. obama's quiet riots are real. >> quiet riot is a phrase he used in this very speech. >> no, no. i was referencing the speech he gave to the hampton minister's conference. here is the deal. talk about the amount of money spent on the gulf coast. alabama, mississippi, okay? is this going to have any impact on this election? absolutely not. this is nothing more than sean hahnity's infan situation with reverend jeremiah wright, pure and simple. >> is there a significance to this you believe? >> i think that there is no material significance here, but the republicans are very good at taking nothing and turning it into what appears to be something. we have to remember that we live in a cou
clinton was accused to. >> brian: it was a bigger deal. i think they will focus on him. i don't think he has governed a black or white american. if nothing else unemployment in africa-american communities are through the roof. i thought allen west comments were insightful. he said i tell you first of all. i was born in raise in georgia. and i am sursurprised that the southern acent with the president raised hawaii. and hoe was able to do that. >> steve: and we'll have the story live. put down that remote. he will be up this hour. >> brian: another story . the department of justice denied that the suspected terrorist held in gitmowill be coming to the united states. the white house bypassed congress and spending money on a federal prison. it is it a back door move that could begin that process. joe, what do you think this is all about? >> first of all i will try to keep my acent one way through the whole thing. one thing, this thing is just another lawless act by our administration to circumvent congress and go around the american people. we fought this thing two years ago. and it was thr
hillary clinton. he then enacted the biggest mandate in the history of the country. so i think the best way -- what i would suggest is don't go on defense. everybody in politics has these change positions. so you go after the president for some of those really dramatic flip-flops that he's had just like everybody else. >> rudy giuliani, the former mayor of new york, he's in denver helping the romney campaign get ready for a huge night, debate night in america. mr. mayor, thanks for joining us. >> thank you, wolf. take care. >> thank you. >>> and just ahead here in "the situation room," we're going to hear from the other side, stephanie cutter, the deputy cap pain manager for barack obama, she's going to join us live from denver as well. that's coming up later. our new poll shows voters have very definite ideas about who they expect will win tonight. gloria borger is standing by. she's got the numbers. [ woman ] it's 32 minutes to go time, and the candidate's speech is in pieces all over the district. the writer's desktop and the coordinator's phone are working on a joke with local color
to solve the debt mess but just she the world we are serious about tackles the mess. ask bill clinton. sometimes you just need a do-able plan that is enough to get the markets believing and the rating agencies to hold off downgrading and have americans feeling more confident. you did not have to wave a wand and tell us how you will make all the red ink disappear overnight. you just have to state a plan on starting the process. tomorrow night be the former reagan economic adviser who remembers how bill clinton and how ronald reagan did that. you do not have to change things immediately, you just have to give a plan that makes people think and hope and pray you have started the process, right? >>guest: that is correct. you need to get growth. you have to get growth. you cannot balance the budget on the backs of the unemployed and the poor. that is where a flat tax comes in. it allows attraction of the capital abroad. sam nunn was correct, you have to cut government spending. that has to happen, especially entitlements where you pay people not to work. there are other ways of bringing th
, you have a point there, but look, i think there's someone else here, bill clinton. had ronald reagan been alive and able to walk into the republican convention and say, look, let's look at, i've been there, turned one of these things around and mitt romney is the guy, i think maybe they would have, at an arbiter of economic policy, i think reagan would have succeeded where bill clinton did for the democrats. bill clinton came into that convention, said i've done it, i've turned an economy around. you remember when i was president, the good economic times and job growth we had. stuart: and bill clinton got it wrong in his dnc speech. he said, no president, no president could have turned around what barack obama inherented. he was flat-out wrong. ronald reagan turned things around from a worse position. >> no, but what i'm saying, i'm not arguing those points, i'm saying that what happened was clinton is, was there and was able to say, i couldn't have turned it around no one could have and if you look since that speech, that's where obama started to have this, you know, this move up in
. that is not going to happen. [applause] one of the main reasons record surpluses under bill clinton were turned into record deficits under george bush is because we put two wars and two tax cuts on a credit card. and now governor romney wants another $5 trillion in tax cuts that he can't pay for? not if i have anything to say about it. that's not going to happen. [applause] we are not going to let this country fall backward. not now. not with so much at stake. we've got to move forward. we need to invest in small business and manufacturers who create jobs here in the united states. we need to recruit 100,000 math and science teachers, train two million workers at community college, bring down the cost of college tuition. we need to -- [cheers and applause] we need to cut our oil imports in half. create thousands more jobs in clean energy. we need to use the savings from ending the wars in iraq and afghanistan to help pay down our deficit and put people back to work doing some nation building right here at home. that's the agenda we need. that's how you strengthen the middle class. that's how yo
. >> two days later, secretary of state clinton made it even plainer. >> what happened in benghazi was a terrorist attack and we will not rest until we have tracked down and brought to justice the terrorists who murdered four americans. >> keeping them honest, if the white house wants credit for quickly labeling what happened in benghazi an act of terror, can't also claim credit for prudently not calling it terrorism for so many days. whatever you think, clearly these are two candidates with some big questions to face and perhaps, they will less than 48 hours from now. that debate, a lot to talk about for us. the polls, debates, big economic numbers coming out this week. joining us, ari fleischer, serving as an unpaid occasional campaign advisor to the romney campaign. also, robert reish, former labor secretary in the clinton administration, economist and professor of public policy at the university of california at berkeley. secretary rice, let me start with you on the terror front and the obama administration. do you buy david axelrod saying that president obama labeled it terror
to say more. we're going to learn more. >> secretary clinton believes that ambassador rice has done a superb job. let's just start that. we completely reject calls here in this building. >> at a time when most americans would want to rally around our country at the death of four americans serving our country, instead we've had this bizarre response, which only leads to me believe there was, number one, there was gross negligence involved, or the president doesn't want us to realize libya may be a failed state in the fbi agents can't even make into banghazi. >> i watched the presentation. i thought it was amazing that someone in her position would go on with that degree of certainty, that fast, and that authoritatively and be that wrong. >> did you know the chairman of the homeland security committee has asked for susan rice to resign? does the president have 100% confidence in susan rice? >> absolutely. she's done a terrific job for this country, for this administration. >> we do know the administration has been extremely inconsistent. we know this was a preplanned terrorist attack.
within herself. bill and hillary clinton had a warm relationship with the "-- queen as well. like other presidents clinton was impressed with what he described as the clever manner in which he discussed public issues, probing the for information and insight without venturing too far into a expressing her own political views. he observed that the circumstance of her birth, she might have been a successful politician and diplomat. as it was, he said, she had to be both but without quite seeming to be either. george w. bush got off on the right foot, literally, with the queen during her 1991 visit. the president's 44-year-old eldest son was wearing custom-made cowboy boots to his parents' private luncheon upstairs of the white house. the texas rangers, is that on the boots, the queen asked? note -- no, ma'am, the young george joked. god save the queen. she left the nest, are you the black sheep in the family? i guess so, he said. the queen replied to all families have them. he asked, whose horse? don't answer that, said his mother, which let the queen escape from the conversation. the 43rd
bill that the president clinton reluctantly signed, people said there would be people starving in the streets. that didn't happen. half the people got off low rolls and the poverty rate went down. there were happier. >> exactly right. the first thing that ever got past. get elected to the house of representatives and ohio. i don't know if that's good or bad. anyway. the first thing that got past was an amendment to the welfare reform bill which required time limits. after a certain point in time if you are an able-bodied adult we will no longer pay you for not working, and guess what happened? no one got kicked off. no one got ticked off because deadlines influence behavior. from going to find a job or going to go get the skills to get a job so i'll have to face that deadline in the kicked off of any type of public health assistance. it worked. those people have moved on to a better -- john: that video which makes reference to the welfare reform. your new version of it. let's plan that clip. >> almost 3 million families. we can do it again. help get americans out of poverty. th
clinton pointed out, you see more job growth under democratic presidents. we try and point out and inform people about exactly what is going on. it starts on a more fundamental basis, which we think we do a much better job with, especially talking about the stimulus. >> one of the most effective tools to reach young voters today? >> it definitely has to be facebook and social media. we just had a google hangout where we streamed a debate between us and the college republicans. they're watching these kinds of things. posting facebook status, tweaketing. they love to see those kinds of things unseen people they know on campus being involved. social media has been one of the p ofulls. >> -- one of the biggest pulls. >> tommy what you are getting -- doing to get people and -- tell me what you are doing to get people. what are you doing? >> it starts with casual conversations. talk about what is important to you. is a gay-rights? the economy? the health care? these are all things obama is for. young students just graduating, talking about these important issues, casually, not approaching them
and will not change his mind. the comparison is to bill clinton who had a democratic house and senate when he first came in. he tried to pass national health care and america responded by voting in a republican congress. that was the republican revolution of 1994 and we saw and about face with bill clinton. the american people will not approve of his policy and that is when bill clinton became a dlc democrats and signed pretty much everything that the congress sent to him. that is the congress the democrats are bragging about. obama has to go back to the clinton era. it was when the republican congress came in in january of 1995 and past welfare reform and all sorts of new and fantastic criminal law provisions. there was a tax cut slipped in. that was the republican congress driving the bus. host: this is from twitter by aamom. guest: the idea that what people do not know about obama it is racist is a preposterous. where was all this love for blacks and high public positions when clarence thomas was nominated to the supreme court? how about 1 condoleezza rice was the first black female secretary of
to dance with them that brung you" politics in the clinton years. the book is a collection of them is ivins's collinson discusses several topics including the financial corruption of the american political system and what it means to be a texan. an encore presentation of that interview now on booktv. c-span: molly ivins, where did you get the title, "you got to dance with them what brung you"? >> guest: it's one of the oldest sayings in politics, 'you got to dance with them what brung ya.' and what it means is that when you get to pu--when you get to office, when you get to public office, you vote with the folks who put you there. and that used to mean your constituents, the people who voted for you. but more and more what it means is you vote with the special interests who put up the money to get you to public office. and part of what this book is about is the corruption of the american political system by money. it's not as though american politics had ever been pristine and pure. of course not. money has always been there. but money nowadays is the dominant factor by such an enormous mar
? i'm confused. >> secretary clinton said she put together a commission to investigate the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. >> the pentagon put together a package to capture the terrorists that did this. >> american airlines plans to check 11 more planes for loose seat problems. the airlines blames improperly installed clamps that allowed seats dome loose. >> she was hit by a car, got stuck in its grill and managed to survive. >> the luckiest dog i've met. >> the back of a manatee. >> looking for the woman who did it. >> leave manatees alone. >> adam greenberg hit in the head by a pitch. the first and only pitch he ever saw until tonight. knee strikes out. >> all that -- >> even if you don't care about the election. >> i know. show you my boobs. >> mr. president, china is demanding that the u.s. payback its debt in fuel immediately. >> why you got to do that. >> you know nothing about me but what you see on the outside and i am much more than a number on a scale. >> on cbs "this morning." >> presidential candidate who blinked less during a debate or as michele bachmann pu
is not a member of the department of defense. it should have been a state department person, hillary clinton, or it should have been leon panetta. >> steve: why was she selected to go out and say the same thing over and over on all the shows and not hillary clinton? >> i think it came down to the short straw. of who had to go out and sell the line. she did a horrible job. >> eric: james clapper saying, oops. we may have screwed up and he's the director of national intelligence. right? >> we still then have a problem with our intelligence gathering systems. but it still comes back to the president who is supposed to be getting these intelligence briefings and up with dates every single day and make the decisions. he's the commander in chief. there is a responsibility there. >> steve: does somebody need to be fired over this cover-up and debauchle? >> i think on 6 november, that person will be fired. >> steve: okay. >> eric: next topic, you have a new ad out. it's pretty darn good. let's take a listen to a piece of that ad. >> february 16, 2003, fort hood, texas, lieutenant colonel allen west
. that happened in one or two of the clinton debates and it could puncture that aura that obama has. one thing will help romney . being on the tage. just being on the same stage as the presidentinantly raises your stat u. what will the questions about tomorrow night. will it be fair or balanced in it will be domestic policy . we are entered in knowing what your question should be. what do you want to know. e-mail and twitter us was we'll read them later on. >> brian: in the mean time there is a request for military rotes and the ending of one war and the ongoing war on terror and ending of another war . you would think that the military is anxious to weigh in. that is not the case in terms of demand. >> steve: we talked about this yesterday. if you look at the number of the military requesting absentee ballots. it is down. 70 or 80 or 90 percent lower numbers than we had back in 2008. these are the request are down by 50 percent. and republican senator from texas said this is another example of how the u.s. department of defense under president obama has failed our military. and in fact, he an
's headed. >> the bill clinton speech. >> i think, yeah, because certainly the metrics haven't changed much. things haven't gotten a great deal better. but i think bill clinton was able to set a predicate and able to say things that barack obama couldn't say. he inherited a mess and he's making it better. he could say i inherited a mess, he couldn't say i'm headaching it b making it better. >> we're saying how mitt romney could win the election if he does well in the debates and turns things around. but the right track/wrong track numbers, i think you would agree with me, the fact that americans, 57% of americans think the economy is getting better, the right track/wrong track is tightening up. it was in the low 30s, now it's at 40%. you look at states like ohio where right track/wrong track is even more positive than that, that does help the president a great deal. >> it does, and that is a pretty remarkable shift in the numbers, as sam just pointed out. and the key is not how people think the economy is today but where they think it's going. and at 57% think it's headed in the right direc
going, i can't believe what i'm seeing? bill clinton's thinking, okay, i saved his convention. do i have to -- i mean, you know bill clinton, along with every other democrat, was pulling his hair out last night. >> oh, yeah. >> so many softballs lobbed barack obama's way that he just didn't take a swing at. >> i think that when you look at those debates four years ago, all obama had to do was to show up and to be calm. they were -- we were in the midst of an economic panic. and he showed, you know, a very calm and steady demeanor which was reassuring. but he's never actually had to make a case in a debate. and he couldn't make a case last night. he couldn't even make a case for his own stimulus program. it was astonishing. >> this was each candidate's best and worst on display because the president -- i think a lot of people agree -- debates aren't his strong point and the stylistic part of it is difficult. with mitt romney, even during the primary, even though the competition was clownlike, he always stepped up and was aggressive and was impressive. >> that's right. this shouldn't come
their minds than we think. the democratic convention moved the needle in this race because bill clinton went out for 45 minutes and made a case on substance largely against mitt romney and he made it. and romney's 47% remark moved the needle. there is a narrow lead for president obama. so romney needs to make the case affirmatively for his program and why it's better than the president's. this is not just a referendum. this was the romney theory going in. he needs to prove that he's a better choice for the next four years. >> people are still persuadable. 15% is a pretty big number. if you look at undecided voters in most polls it's around 6%. but rich is right. people will pay attention to this and they will look for something maybe to make them change their minds for people who aren't completely thrilled about their choice which actually i think in both parties it's most people. most people aren't that excited about their choice. but it's mostly the independent voters they will have to focus on. bill: you make the case this debate is really for them. the persuadables. >> it's not just for
in the race because there was no way he was going to beat hillary clinton or the other candidates like john edwards and others who were ahead of him in line. he needed to consolidate the black vote, and he went down there, and he told an african-american audience what they wanted to hear. he gave them the rhetoric and used the sort of dialect that he thought would go over well with that audience and also played up his bona fides as a congress regant of jeremiah wright, a person who was well esteemed in that crowd. so that's what he was trying to do then. now, if you're president obama, you're walking onto the debate stage tonight in denver where you are, megyn, and you are expecting to be treated deferentially, you are expected to live this sort of this cloud of presidential privilege where people don't say stuff, and you don't have to pander, you don't have to go out of your way to tell audiences what they want to hear to such a great degree because you are the incumbent. so for the president he cannot like that this is part of the discussion today. i'm sure as you saw with ben he bolt, it
exactly is causing the turmoil? is it the sanctions or as hillary clinton was suggesting or iran's mismanagement of the economy and where is this heading? could there will be a persian spring that somehow overthrows the regime? >> we thought we were headed in that direction in 2009. it is heartening to see there are enough people in iran to organize and express a view that pushes the government to be more responsive. it's very, very difficult to see how the current, at least starting of these protests, can get the critical mass that is needed to make a change in the regime there. if there isn't international support for it and organized opposition, these regimes like north korea, china and in times part they can weather this kind of turmoil without changeover for a very long time. >> gregg: israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu believes that iran is roughly nine months from spinning enough uranium to create a bomb. is that a fairly accurate timetable in your judgment? >> well, we don't get to know. i think once we have verification that they have the capability it's been too
dramatically since the ryan selection, since medicare, bill clinton's arguments on medicare at the convention, it became central to the discussion, there's been a big shift towards obama in that category. >> this doesn't take medicare off the table. we still have to deal with this. >> you're exactly right. medicare and medicaid are unchecked going to cripple this country. we saw erskine bowles earlier this week in chicago, tom, and i said erskine, isn't it the truth that medicare and medicaid by itself is going to consume every cent that the federal government takes in in 20 years? he said no, that's not true. he said, it's doing it right now. he said, this year alone, in the fiscal year that just ended, every dime the federal government got went to pay medicare, medicaid, social security and interest on the debt. that means everything else that on outside of medicare, medicaid, social security and interest on the debt, we borrowed from china. we borrowed from the saudis, we borrowed. we went deeper in debt. that's unsustainable. and the fact that we're not having that discussion in this camp
when bush came into office, clinton left him a $5.60 trillion surplus. bush gave it away to his billionaire buddy spirit that was 2001. i -- david which was billionaire bodies. that was 2001. in 2003, bush gave republican job creators $3.50 trillion for jobs, but we got 99 despite 2008. that is a whole year. president obama was then-senator obama -- guest: your command of the numbers is terrific. the question about the media. honest --ed, let's be you have to have a strong voices inside the democratic party and a strong voices outside in the movements of our time an independent media to call the mainstream media, and we can discuss what mainstream media means, but there is a mainstream establishment media which has as its working premise the idea of the cult of balance, something our media columnist, eric alterman, has written and what about i-- has written a lot about. if someone went on to the floor of congress and said the earth is flat, the media would write about both sides as if both were true. i mentioned norm ornstein earlier. he is no liberal progressive. he is sort of
. according to the wall street journal the two persons mentioned are white house chief of staff clinton blue anderson bowls. glen hubbard from the columbia schools. >> airlines making changes hair. over the past five years the airline cut smaller fees and flights shorter than 500 miles. that's kierd to go a new study by the office of inspector general of the department of transportation. another money saving strategy for the airlines and you are definitely familiar with this one. packing more passengers into bigger planes. is there any consolation for fliers out there? according to the study your flight has a greater chance of being on time and not being kept. >> that's good news. >> homeowner's insurance. you have new information for us. >> we are more satisfied than ever when it comes to homeowner's insurance. they like to bundle their auto and homeowner's policies. according to a jd power it was 785 out of 1,000 topping the list a michiganing ca mutual with 859, followed by aaa in southern california. american family and shelter. now the big insurers like travelers state farm and allstate
pleas were denied by the u.s. government. they sent a letter to hillary clinton demanding answers. they are also hearing next week. jason will be joining fox and friends today at 8:50. you will want to hear that one. it is time for the first degree weather update from maria molina who has a look at this. >> looking good at the part of the eastern see board a little on the muggy side we are dealing with fog across the area because we have a storm system that is a slow mover continuing to push eastward are lingering showers. that's what we are going to be talking about across the entire eastern sea board. 75 over raleigh 63 over new york city. otherwise you can see lingering some drizzle out across up state new york down into parts of pennsylvania. we are going to continue to see the showers and storms through out the day today across portions of the northeast parts of the carolinas down to the state of florida. a lot heavier if you head southbound into the state of florida. quiet out over the plains. if you start across the northern rockies we have a strong system dipping on down.
out. host: let's take another look at a moment from a debate. this is in 1992. bill clinton and george h. w. bush. let's take a listen. [video clip] >> you been broad some one from russia. i honored mr. perot end uniform and every man and woman who's ever served, including admiral crowe, who is your joint chiefs and has supported me. but when joe mccarthy went abroad this country attacking people's patriotism, he was wrong. and a senator from connecticut stood up to him named prescott of bush. your father was right to stand up to joe mccarthy. you were wrong to attack my patriotism. i was opposed to the war, but i love my country. we need a president who will bring this country together, not divide it. >> i did not question the man's patriotism. i question his judgment and character. and what he did in moscow, that is fine. let him explain it. i accept that. what i do not accept is organizing demonstrations in a foreign hundred when your country's at war. i'm sorry, i cannot accept that. guest: that is an interesting example of a real disagreement. what bush thought was a strong politi
, secretary clinton and at the white house seems to have ignored very serious threat warnings. ignored attacks. a dozen attacks now we know from the letter that has been sent by congress. and then after the fact, after having ignored those attacks and threats and denying resources our consulate requested, they tried to cover up. very, very serious cover-up. hard to remember, frankly a more serious cover-up. and, i certainly hope that we'll get some focus and attention on this, particularly given we have four dead americans. martha: we have spoken to a friend of, two former navy seals who were lost in that. one of the great ambiguity also about all this that continues to strike me the explanation of what their role was. because in the initial hours and days there was a suggestion that they were provided security what we're learning they were not. they were there on a very separate mission which most likely according to the reports that we're hearing involved trying to keep track of some of the weapons that were let loose africa introduce if i was ousted out of power. why the ambiguity on the se
